Father, husband, chaplain, teacher, pastor, and all the other roles I occupy from time to time. I’m an Active Duty US Army chaplain. I am ordained and endorsed by the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Disclaimer: Nothing written on this site reflects the official views of the United States Army, the United States Army Chaplain Corps, or the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Ask me just about anything and I might write about it. Mostly. Well, there might be some caveats. But really, ask me about it and I’ll respond. Promise. Just might take a bit sometimes.
Here is a sign that hangs on my door. It describes my ministry.
No matter where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.
Really. I mean that.
Liberal, Conservative, Independent, and Apathetic.
Fat, Skinny, In-between and struggling.
Atheist, Christian, Jew, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Agnostic, Pagan, Heathen, and None.
Seeing a theme here? If I left you out, know that I include you.
Gay, Straight, and everything in between.
Church going and church avoiding.
You are welcome here.
As your chaplain, I make you this promise:
I will not judge you.
I will not condemn you.
I will ask the hard questions necessary for growth.
I will extend the grace of God to you.
You are welcome into this Sacred and Safe space.
